Breaking vegan One woman's journey from veganism, extreme dieting, and orthorexia to a more balanced life

Jordan Younger

Book - 2016

"In Breaking Vegan, Jordan reveals how veganism and obsessive "healthy" dieting eventually led her to a diagnosis of orthorexia, or a focus on healthy food that involves other emotional factors and ultimately becomes dysfunctional, even dangerous. In candid detail, Jordan shares what it was like to leave veganism (and experience a vicious backlash from the vegan community that once embraced her) and how she ultimately found her way to recovery. In addition to this, Jordan outlines... an "anti-diet," whole-foods-based eating plan featuring more than 25 recipes to help inspire others to find similar balance in their own lives,"
